R/V Tioga

I love exploring around Woods Hole. With the Oceanographic Institute and Marine Biology Lab sited in the village, there are all kinds of interesting boats and gadgets. The reseach vessel Tioga was tied up at the pier when I visited this summer. It’s not their biggest boat but she’s fast and used for research in coastal waters. She’s been used to collect water samples, deploy and recover different types of devices, and tag right whales with behavior-monitoring equipment.

      Good morning. “Hole” here refers to a passage on the sea. There are a series of islands here and all of the passages are called holes. I hope to hit the road this weekend. What about you?

        Sadly I’ve never been across the Atlantic! You wrote about the Light a couple of weeks back and I went on to look it up! Have a great weekend Chris!

      I know, Arati. I feel the same. I’ll get an idea to do something and then realize I can’t because of COVID. Let’s do what we can for now. Let’s stay healthy, let’s think about what we really want and what’s really important and then when this is over, we can go for it. Thanks, Arati.

      Thank you, Sandra. They have some cool things there. Sadly, because of Coronavirus, I couldn’t get onto their docks which are normally open. But I did get this shot. Things are good here. I’m wrapping up the work week and heading for the weekend. I hope you’re doing well, my friend.
